Do you want information to help you or your family overcome addiction recovery?
Are you a family member or friend who would love some insights about substance use?
This year I decided to look back and see what has changed in the world of recovery blogging. Many of the blogs are still going strong and a number of new ones that have come into their own this past year.
Twenty more blogs were added to the list this time around. The purpose of this list is to have an easy way for you to check out the information that so many bloggers have created to be another voice spreading the word about recovery and resources.
They share their stories, information, and tips to help others. This year I also added my blog to the list.
Feel free to add a URL in the comments section so that we can check it out if you don’t see it on this list.
The blogs are listed by their Alexa score. Please note that the scores change daily, so this is an approximate number. The Alexa score is not by any means the sole rating of the value of any blog.
Be sure to check out all the blogs as there is great information here throughout the list.
I also added a section for podcasts, so be sure to take a look at the ten links that are listed there.
Without further ado, here are 75 amazing recovery blogs for 2015!
